3 Housekeeping Etiquette Tips, ,

A housekeeping service is valuable because they’ll save you countless hours performing chores around the home, and will keep your space clean and healthy. Allowing someone into your home for the first time can feel a little strange, though. You can foster a strong relationship with your cleaning service and make the most of their time by following some simple etiquette tips.

How to Properly Work With Housekeeping

1. Be Respectful

The people who work in maid services are professionals, so treat them as you would any other contractor. You can set clear expectations right away for what you want.

They are well-trained so they know what to do, but you may have unique needs that you want them to focus on. If you want them to change the way they do something, ask politely. This will foster a good relationship that is better for everyone involved.

2. Keep Pets in Mind

housekeepingNotify your service of any pets when you schedule your cleaning. If they’re well-behaved, then having your pets around is not a problem—the staff will simply work around them. If your pets are aggressive, excited, or curious, it’s best to keep them out of the areas that the crew will clean. Place their bed, toys, and a few treats in the garage or basement to keep them comfortable while the crew cleans.

3. Determine Appropriate Tipping

If you hire someone for a one-time move-out cleaning, then it’s customary to tip between 10% and 20% of the price. If you have someone who comes regularly, you may choose to give them a year-end bonus rather than tipping each time. If you hire a service and different people come each week, then tip after the service is completed.
